Lost In Sherwood Forest
25 March 2006 | by (New York City) – See all my reviews

This early version of Robin Hood has turned up at a couple of recent shows sponsored by the Fort Lee Film Commission as one of the films shot at Fort Lee, New Jersey, one of world's major film centers in the early 20th century. The print that survives is in pretty good shape for such an orphan, aided by a lot of tinting in the process.

While it survives in good shape physically and as a historical document, it does not connect to the audience well. The acting is well over the top; the plot is frequently obscured and the compositions, given the lovely background, is at best plebeian.

Worst of all, to the modern eye, is a bit of telegraphing: the morality or personalities of the characters are revealed by doing a fade into animals. The effect is laughable.

Avoid this one unless you have a strong interest in film history.
